FLIGHT PLANNING, BRIEFING, & FILING
Plan flights with Touch Planning on the Map or full-featured form-based Flights view. Tap out a route in seconds and quickly see if flights will be affected by weather or TFRs. Helpful Route, Altitude, and Procedure Advisors make planning easy and accurate. Generate a graphical preflight briefing and file your flight plan directly from the app. Print a professional-grade Navlog for inflight reference.

WEATHER
Interactive weather layers include animated radar, global satellite and winds aloft, global icing, turbulence, and surface analysis, graphical AIR/SIGMETs, flight category, visibility, and more. View decoded METARs, TAFs, and MOS forecasts. Thoughtfully organized Imagery view puts a full range of forecast tools at your fingertips.

PLATES, CHARTS, & MAPS
Both VFR and IFR operations are covered with all of the essentials required for planning and navigation: data-driven Aeronautical Maps, VFR Sectionals, High/Low Enroute charts, SIDs, STARs, approach and taxi charts, and terrain, satellite, and street map views.

GEO-REFERENCED APPROACHES & TAXI CHARTS
Plates and taxi charts enable the real time display of your GPS location on the chart. They can also be overlaid on the Maps view along with weather and hazards for the ultimate situational awareness.

GLOBAL HAZARD AWARENESS TECHNOLOGY
Plan and fly with more confidence in all conditions and terrain. Top-down-view Hazard Advisor map layer, Terrain Profile View, and 3D Synthetic Vision seamlessly integrate into the map display to depict a clear picture of terrain and obstacle hazards anywhere in the world. When paired with an AHRS source, Synthetic Vision provides a backup attitude display.

What's New

Version 10.1.1

**Visit foreflight.com/10-1 to watch the new feature videos.**
Flight Planning Enhancements
• File with ForeFlight and stay informed of flight delays with Expected Departure Clearance Time (EDCT) notifications from ATC via email and push.
• Graphical Route Advisor now supports user-defined minimum and maximum route altitudes to generate a more tailored Recommended Route. Available for Performance plans.
• Fuel planning refinements make it easier to switch between fuel policies and update target values for faster scenario planning. Available with Performance plans.

Aeronautical Map Feature Toggles & Improved Airspace Labels
• Show/hide Aeronautical Map elements with the new feature toggle sidebar on iPad to instantly declutter the map.
• Toggle buttons only appear when the Aeronautical layer is enabled, and include filters for airports, airspace, airways, ARTCC boundaries and frequencies, terrain, and roads.
• Dynamic airspace altitude labels are now always visible along airspace boundaries.

Automated Terrain & Obstacle Hazard Alerts Enhance Safety
• The new Hazard Alert system detects and warns of threatening obstacle and terrain using visual and audio alerts that display app-wide.
• Detects proximity to airports and the approach path and automatically adjusts the scan to reduce nuisance alerts.
• Automatically dismisses the visual alert once hazards are no longer a threat.
• Turn on Hazard Alerts in More > Settings > Alerts.
• Available for customers on Pro Plus or higher.

Other Improvements:
• New Transition Altitude alert provides an audio and visual callout when you climb or descend through 18,000 feet in the U.S. or Canada. Also includes the nearest altimeter setting on descent.
• Customers who fly with SiriusXM’s SXAR1 aviation weather receiver can now overlay a detailed Freezing Level layer on the map. Colored gradients depict the lowest altitude at which freezing and icing may occur across the continental U.S., southern Canada, and northern Mexico.
• Tapping on expected route notifications now loads the modified route into the Flights view and automatically refreshes the Navlog and Briefing.
• Non-standard waypoint types like address/place searches, VOR-DME points, and location pins in User Map Layers now support “Add To Route” in addition to “Direct To” functionality, allowing you to incorporate them into your route just as you would a traditional waypoint or VOR.
• Airport markers in Synthetic Vision are larger for better visibility and you can also single-tap on them to access the information popover just like on the Aeronautical Map layer.

ForeFlight Now Available in Europe
• New Europe geo-region is now an option that can be added to your ForeFlight subscription.
• Beginning with a focus in the German market, ForeFlight is a single EUROCONTROL-integrated solution for flight planning, briefing, filing, and flying in Europe.
• ForeFlight’s fast, data-driven Aeronautical Maps use Jeppesen’s global VFR and IFR navigation data to depict all of the waypoints, airways, arrival and departure procedures, circuits, holds, no overfly areas, and more to support VFR and IFR flying in Europe.
• The Europe geo-region also includes AIP procedures, charts, and documents provided via EUROCONTROL.
• Optional add-ons at launch include Jeppesen VFR Procedures, Jeppesen IFR Airway Manual coverages, and the German DFS VFR AIP and Charts. More countries and coverages to come.
• Learn more about support for Europe at foreflight.com/europe.

Foreflight: Essential and best value in all of aviation!

Visth

FF is easily the best app for aviation. I have all others, and they are not bad, some even good (eg GP), but I will not leave home without FF. Connecting to various Garmin devices now makes it a great in flight manager as well. I am glad that emphasis is placed on pre-flight management in this update. While flying multiple aircraft in various conditions, different performances, loads, settings, it is all adjusted on the fly through a pilot centered, intuitive interface. This makes keeping track of all data pertinent to a flight, as well as briefing, filing and tracking the flight as easy as can be. As an app goes, it is not cheap like a 2.99 game, but as an essential, reliable tool it is the cheapest utility around in all of aviation. In a world where we measure things in AMU’s, this app and it’s subscription fees are nothing to cry about, and in my opinion the subscription fee is the least I can contribute to keep this ForeFlight team eager to improve and grow.

My only concern is not related to FF, but more related to the iPad and its very short life cycle before obsolescence. I am already concerned about what will happen when iPads cease to exist. For now, i am including a new iPad every other year to the price of doing business.

Foreflight: ruining an app one update at a time

Wastintime

This is the worst update foreflight has ever made. They took something so streamlined, quick, and easy as flight planning and made it cumbersome and ungainly. It's no longer simple to make a few little changes and see how it affects the flight. You have to load and create performance profiles. It's like they never even considered you might fly a different speed or TAS at different altitudes. Not to mention not everyone wants to waste time with creating a whole new profile when you just want to see how changing one number changes the flight. AND not everyone only flies one airplane! These last two updates ruined the best thing about foreflight. Now they've also ruined your map screen. All the colors have shifted and seem to be permanently stuck on night mode. No setting will change it back. Now you can barely read TAFs and metars in the daylight. On top of everything else the app crashes at least once a flight now, and if it doesn't crash you have to restart it any time it loses communication with your ADS-B unit because it won't reconnect or show any data or even the device unless you restart the app. Talk about going backwards.

Developer Response

Hi Wastintime - we appreciate your feedback. In ForeFlight Mobile EFB 9.1 you can adjust your aircraft’s performance profile data for a flight by typing space-separated values for cruise speed and/or fuel flow directly into the Flight Plan Editor. We created this Quick Tip video tutorial that shows how: https://youtu.be/7OU3VR2ZziM Please send us an email at team@foreflight.com if we can be of any further assistance.

5 Star App, 6 Star Customer Service

WardHolbrook

I’ve been using ForeFlight for several years now and the app has always been at the forefront of innovation and usefulness. If it doesn’t quite have everything you could possibly want, just wait a bit, it will probably be in the next update.

As for their customer service, it cannot get any better. Problems are few are far between, but when they arise their customer service team is on top of it. Case in point, we had a pop up trip to Mexico and their Mexico/Latin America rep Albert has not only helped me with getting the proper subscriptions, he as also helped us other solving some pilot certification issues with the Mexican authorities.

Great App, Great People, you cant ask for more than that.
